Aimed at powerboats that require awareness of wind strength and direction, this sensor combines ultrasonic wind sensors together with air temperature and barometric pressure sensors. This is particularly useful where space does not permit the installation of a wind vane.
Sensor uses standard PGNs and comes with MicroC connectors enabling easy connection to an NMEA2000 backbone.
The 120WX offers a truly best-in-class solution at a better price point than any other weather monitoring system on the market today.
Reliability and superior accuracy, along with no moving parts and plug and play installation, makes the 120WX an easy and affordable choice for any weather solution. The Airmar WX WeatherStation® instruments are unique, as they are the only weather monitoring system to offer true and apparent wind speed and direction in one compact housing - without the need for additional sensors. Ideal for stationary applications, the 110WX model offers apparent wind speed and direction, air temperature, and barometric pressure readings.
The many new benefits of the WX Series include:
Removable humidity sensor that is field serviceable
IPX6 waterproof rating (units with the relative humidity module are IPX4 waterproof rated)
Power supply featuring a 50% reduction in current draw for use in remote locations that use solar or battery power
Wider operating voltage range of 9-40 VDC
Adjustable, unfiltered wind data for monitoring maximum gust conditions
Output via a single cable (NMEA®2000) data interface
WeatherCaster PC software for viewing and customizing data sentences
